File Kansas Taxes & Get Your Tax Refund Faster
Kansas has income tax rates ranging between 2.7% and 4.8%, which are lower than the nation's average. The state's annual tax revenue is close to the median range at more than $7 billion. Both residents and nonresidents who do not live in the state but earn income from the state must file Kansas tax returns. Anyone who lives in the state for less than 12 months may file as a resident or a nonresident.
How To File Kansas Tax Extensions And Amended Returns
Since Kansas has automatic extension provisions for people who file federal extensions, a copy of the federal extension must be submitted with the return by October 15. An extension of time to file is not an extension of time to pay.
A taxpayer who discovers an error on a previously filed Kansas taxes should submit an amended return. Changing filing status is not permitted for amended returns. Use Form K-40, and put an "X" in the box for amended filing. Use Form K-40V also if there is a payment required. After completing the forms, mail them to:
Kansas Department of Revenue
915 SW Harrison Street
Topeka, KS 66612-1588
